Personal profile

Research Interests

Physical organic chemistry, molecular recognition, non-covalent interactions, supramolecular chemistry, single-molecule biophysics, molecular machines

My research in a nutshell

Research in the Cockroft group spans the areas of physical organic chemistry and bionanotechnology. In the first area we use a combination of synthetic organic chemistry and computational modelling to address fundamental questions surrounding the nature of molecular interactions and chemical reactivity. While in the second area, we are seeking to exploit biomolecules as a toolkit for the construction of molecular machines and sensors that operate at the single-molecule level and inside living cells.
